- Elizabeth Bathory – voiced by Rumi Okubo
There is a rumour floating around that Elizabeth Bathory was a vamiress during her lifetime, and now she has been recognized as one. She is an anti-heroic spirit whose essentials are that which has beauty, yet she has somehow spiritually awoken as an idol. Certain chaos.

Story (official translation by XSEED Games)
- Main Story
The Moon Cell Automaton is a spiritron computer, which exists on the moon and has the power to grant any wish. All across the spiritron-constructed virtual world, SE.RA.PH., Servants and the Masters who control them fight for the right to be the Moon Cell Automaton’s one owner in a ceremonial conflict known as the Holy Grail War.
Now, the Servant Nero Claudius and her Master have won the Holy Grail War and have obtained the universal wishing mechanism, the Holy Grail.
They also obtained the Regalia, a ring that proves their kingship. With it, they rule over their once-enemy Servants and start a new beginning on the moon’s new world.
But a new enemy has appeared before them. And this enemy has something that shouldn’t exist: another Regalia.
- Sub Story
The story is told from the independent perspectives of three heroine Servants—Nero Claudius, Tamamo no Mae, and Attila—but is augmented by the various side stories of other Servants that help supplement the main storyline.
Gilgamesh’s Redesigned Costume
Marvelous announced earlier this month that they would change the design of the additional Gilgamesh costume that is to be included in the Regalia limited edition version of Fate/EXTELLA in Japan due to “various reasons”. The image you can see above is the final design for the “Coldhearted Bloodless Warden” costume.
Due to release in Japan on November 10th and in the West this winter, be sure to keep an eye on the site for all the Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star news you will need!
